Comment (by Rarst):

 Not sure about names for the new fields, if they will hold timestamps they
 might be better named as such? Seems confusing that `date` field is a
 string, but `date_utc` is a timestamp. `timestamp` and `timestamp_end`

 `strotime()` for reversing timestamps is flawed and we are removing it in
 core. Is there now better time zone information than seconds offset to

 For more robust example [https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-
 includes/functions.php#L184-L191 see `date_i18n()`] (except time zone
 would be event, not site in this case).

 Also I still would like to see API response contain event time zone
 somewhere, if it's now available? That's just meaningful to have, even if
 core won't use it right now.
